he new technology is being called Flexspeaker because in addition to being paper thin, it can also be rolled up or folded. Right now the goal for minimum sheet size is around 23.6” by 17.3”, and would cost roughly $20 USD each.

I agree, this stands a great chance of being abused by marketing companies with talking ads everywhere you turn.  Cause we don't get enough ads in everything around us as it is.

I'm sure Apple would place one of these in every one of their shipments so that when you open it would play the "welcome tune" and thank you for your purchase. I could also see this being used on netbooks with OLED displays for the ultimate flat portable.

I can foresee annoying adds in subway stations and bus terminals with a "Al Harrington's Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man Emporium" type of voice.

 I can see it being used. Something along the lines of...

 "Wake up Kent. This is God!.... and Kent, stop playing with yourself."

God, i can see this being abused so much. Imagine, you're in the school bathroom, alone and relaxed, and when you stand up to wipe, the inocent looking "follow the school rules" poster screams "AHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" and you freak out and fall in the toilet or something like that.  =D

That's Right. YOU GOT PoWNeD! (not)

put the stuff in wallpaper (or behind wallpaper) and enhance a home theater systems with complete 360 degree coverage. of course it couldn't be used as a replacement because of the problems with bass but it could be a nice compliment. or give a freaky surreal experience to environments with ambient or white noise in rooms.

I can see this being used in the development of The Young Lady's Illustrated Primer. Most definitely.

I can definitely see this product being used in full public transportation enclosures where people wait for buses or street cars for advertisements.
